Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia, Spain your home away from home

Few people think of Spain as a skiing resort, but at over 10,000 feet above sea level, the mountains around Sierra Nevada Town are a great area for winter sports. However, during the dry summer months when the Spanish Costas are sizzling, a rental home in Sierra Nevada Town in the cool mountain air makes good sense too. With spectacular scenery yet within easy reach of the Moorish city of Granada, it is a different way to enjoy all that Andalucia has to offer.

Things to Do in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia Winter Sports

During the winter months, the resorts in the Sierra Nevada Mountains get light, dry powder snow, due to the low humidity in the area. This is perfect for alpine skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and other winter sports on the 65km of ski slopes. From the top of the nearby Veleta Peak, skiers have wonderful views to the Mediterranean and the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Summer Activities

The Sierra Nevada Mountains and nearby National Parks are ideal for walking and hiking in the summer months. With dramatic scenery and fresh mountain air, this is also the quietest time to enjoy the small towns in the area. Horse riding in the lush green valleys, caving and mountain biking are popular activities around your beautiful holiday home in Sierra Nevada town.

The architecture and churches of the city of Granada are also worth exploring.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Situated in a nice quiet area with breathtaking views from the veranda. It had everything that we could have wanted. Rosie was very helpful, we tried and bought some of her delicious jam. The village of Guejar Sierra has a lovely atmosphere. We got to explore and take part in village life, especially enjoying the tapas on Sunday beside the church in the village square. We look forward to returning again soon. Anne & Majella D.

We experienced delays in car hire at the airport so arrived quite late, but the keyholders Rosie and Graham met us in the village with no problems and were very kind and helpful - thank you Rosie for the lovely cherry jam! The apartment was perfect for us (couple, no kids), nicely furnished and well supplied with everything as listed - plenty of towels, kitchen equipment etc. I wouldn't normally expect Wifi in a private rental apartment, so the Mifi was a bonus - worked perfectly and easy to top up at the ATM in the village. The view was great, as pictured in the listing. Guejar is less than half an hour's drive to Granada - don't miss the Alhambra! The village itself is lovely, with a nice buzz of locals and people out from Granada to eat in the restaurants around the square every evening. There are also lots of great walks either directly from the village or with starting points a short car journey away - we did the Vereda de la Estrella, which was a tough walk for two medium-fit 40-somethings - but well worth it. There is a lovely short walk of about 40 minutes from the village along a disused tram line to Maitena where you can swim in the river pool and eat at the restaurant afterward. Both walks recommended. All in all an enjoyable stay and I would recommend this rental.

It is a good size, well presented, had everything we needed and was very clean. The cottage is very close to the ski resort, just a 10 minute drive and a 20 minute drive down to Granada. Eva was a great host. We would certainly come back another year.
